To Grammar’s House We Go


With my new iPhone in hand, I’ve finally discovered the wonderful world of podcasts. One of my personal favorites is the award-winning Grammar Girl podcast, starring the surprisingly charming Mignon Fogarty. Each week, she goes after an issue (many raised by her listeners via email or voicemail messages) and uses extensive references from obscure style guides to correct the masses. I think that the true enjoyment of listening to this show comes from the guilty pleasure of having a professional tell you that you are justified in your long-held pet peeve about how some people love to spell “lose” as “loose”. Oooooh, it feels so good.
